Robbie Williams en Gary Barlow - Shame
Tekst en muziek: Robbie Williams en Gary Barlow
(2010)






Well there’s three versions of this story
Mine and yours and then the truth
Now we can put it down to circumstance
Our childhood, then our youth
Out of some sentimental gain
I wanted you to feel my pain
But it came back return to sender
I read your mind and tried to call
My tears could fill the Albert Hall
Is this the sound of sweet surrender



What a shame we never listen
I told you through the television
And all that went away was the price we pay
People spend a lifetime this way
Oh, what a shame



So I got busy throwing everybody underneath the bus
Oh, and with your poster thirty foot high at the back of Toys ‘R’ Us
I wrote a letter in my mind
But the words were so unkind
About a man I can’t remember
I don’t recall the reasons why
I must have meant them at the time
Is this the sound of sweet surrender



What a shame we never listen
I told you through the television
And all that went away was the price we pay
People spend a lifetime this way
And that’s how they stay
Oh, what a shame



Words come easy, when they’re true
Words come easy, when they’re true



So I got busy throwing everybody underneath the bus
And with your poster thirty foot high at the back of Toys ‘R’ Us
Now we can put it down to circumstance
Our childhood, then our youth



What a shame we never listen
I told you through the television
And all that went away was the price we pay
People spend a lifetime this way
And that’s how they stay
People spend a lifetime this way
Oh, what a shame
What a shame
Ohohoh
Such a shame
What a shame
Pitiful shame
Real shame
